The pictures of your hotel room that you include in your listing give your potential guests the “first impression” on what kind of service they can expect. If the photos you put in your hotel listing don’t clearly showcase your hotel’s rooms and amenities, guests can’t gauge what your hotel offers. This might drive them away.
According to TripAdvisor, a hotel listing with more than 20 photos is more likely to have more engagement. However, you should not just post random and unstaged photos.
Don’t know how to take good shots of your property? Here are tips on how you can take professional photos of your hotel from our very own In-House Photographer.
1. Stand in the corner of the room when taking photos.
When you take photos from the corner of the room, you can see the whole room properly. Take different photos from all corners so you can properly show each part of the room.
2. Take advantage of natural lighting.
Open the windows in your hotel room so the sunlight illuminates the whole room evenly. However, avoid taking photos between 12 noon to 2 pm since this is when the sunlight is too bright.
3. Just take as many photos as you can.
It’s better to take a lot of photos when you’re already shooting. You can just pick the best ones later. If you take photos at different times and use them in one listing, there will be discrepancies in the appearance of the hotel room which might confuse guests.
